" Kids say the darndest things "..........what's ur cute kid story?
My son is not potty trained but knows when he needs to go most of the time. Yesterday, we took his diaper off because he had dropped the content of his glass on himself... As soon as he was naked he squatted on the kitchen floor and started peeing. I told him that he needed to tell us when he had to pee and we would go to the potty. He turned around, pointed at the pee puddle and said: "Baby pee".
I answered: " well, Shawn where does this have to be done"
He shrugged his shoulders: "Potty but pee floor, WHY?"
"well honey, I don't know why you pee on the floor, why do you think you do it?"
He then walked away, took a rag out of the drawer and started helping his dad clean up the mess.
I just laughed, I couldn't help it.

Awww I love that story!!! My 8th grade art teacher asked me not to take an art class ever again...I don't know WHAT he is talking about..I can draw the best damn stick men out there. My son thinks it's great!
SO my Uncle is visiting...and we where outside on the deck playing and my uncle came out with no shirt on. J walks right up to him, sits on his lap, grabs his cheast and says "mommy, boobies too!" I had to go back inside!
Megan, your story reminded me of an incident that happened to me back in high school. By some fluke of luck, I was accepted to a boarding school for artistically gifted students. One of the requirements was that we take a semester to work with a medium that we had never handled before, so I got stuck in Ceramics--which I SUCK at to this day.
I was trying to make a container that had collapsed for what felt like the 100th time when I realized that, given the characteristics of clay and the delicacy of my design, there was no way it would ever work. My teacher commented that he was proud that I had figured out the flaws he had seen in my design from the start all on my own--mind you, I had been trying to build the stupid thing for more than 3 weeks at this point! As he walked away, I gathered the wet lump of clay that was my collapsed container and hurled it at him with all of my might! Unfortunately, he turned around to face me a split second before it reached him, so it hit him square in the face and chest, knocking him off balance and into my fellow classmate's beautifully intricate tower.....which collapsed :(
Anyway, at the end of the semester, a few of us decided to steal his notebook (he wrote everything in this funky notebook which had a section of pages dedicated to each of us. Among his notes about me, it read "Knows when to abandon flawed design plans. Need to work on better ways to cope with failed ideas."
PS We gave the note book back, and to this day, he is one of my most loved teachers and is actually a very good friend and mentor, despite the fact that I hit him in the face with roughly 7 pounds of wet clay....

We have been working on feelings and I didn't think he was getting it until he was jumping off the couch and I said he couldn't. He walked over grabbed a block, gave me a dirty look, threw the bloack and said "I mad at mom" I asked if he was feeling better. He replied "yup, cookie now please" We still have some work to do LOL
Every morning when I go into Roxanne's room I knock, open the door, and while I'm opening her blinds I ask her, "Did you have a good sleep?". This morning I knocked on the door and peeked in.....she was hiding in her crib and jumped up and said, "I had sweep good, mommy!"

Oh I can't wait for these moments.. I only have 1 really, i'm starting some potty training with my 20 month old because she knows when she is peeing, so we've been having her run around bottomless because she can't yet pull down her pants. Anyways, the first time she made a puddle on the floor she pointed down and saids "pee!" of course, I said, yes, that's pee, and pee goes in the potty! Then I cleaned the floor.
Next time she peed on the floor, she peed, looked down and went "pee!" then ran to get the rag and wiped it up for me, then looked up at me and went "gone!".
So cute. She doesn't talk much yet, but she's so expressive it's adorable!
We went to the library this week-end and my husband picked out "old Macdonald." for Shawn and started singing it to Shawn while I was looking for "mommy books". Later on in the car Shawn was getting impatient while we were waiting for his dad so I grabbed the book and read the title. He goes "EE I EE I OOOOO." Now everytime we say old, macdonald or farm he answers; "EE I EE I OOOO" He's super cute.
Here's another one.
A few weeks ago, Jake & I were snuggling together while he was trying to fall asleep.
"Mommy?" he asked, "Why do we have toes?"
I had to think because I honestly could not remember, and finally settled on the balance theory. I explained it to him as simply as I could, noting the way they bend when we walk and keep us from tipping over. He was quiet for nearly a minute, so I relaxed thinking I had sufficiently answered the question--probably the 400th question of that day.
"Mommy?" he asked, just as I had relaxed,"Why aren't they one big line?"
"Why aren't they what?"
"Why are they all separated into little sticks, and not one straight across thing that bends?"
I don't know!! I thought.
"Because that would look weird," I responded without much thought--I was tired.
"It wouldn't look THIS is weird," he replied as he raised his tiny little foot into the air and wiggled his little toes.

when my older daughter misplaced her shoes and my husband asked where she put them, because he had told her you can find out just about anything on google, she told him to look on google for her shoes! (this wasn't her misunderstanding, it was her pulling his leg!)

Milla's new favourite saying is 'Whadayadoin' (what are you doin?). If I come into the room she'll turn to me and go 'Hi!' Whadayadoin?' lmao. So funny since she's still so young, and I can't help but giggle every time. So between this, 'who is it?' and 'wassat' (what's that?' I'm already answering about 7414664 questions a day. God help me when she's 3!

ROFL! Thanks for the support.. I do remember Gadget too! haha!
So on the way to cadets I had this conversation with Nicole:
Me: Nicole you're not supposed to have gum on the deck, your commander said so.
Her: I know, I'll throw it out.
Me: Just toss it out the window.
Her: *rolls it down and tosses* Mom you told me not to litter (of course says it after she tosses the gum LOL)
Me: It's food, it'll decompose (ya gum's not food I know LOL I'm not even sure if it will decompose but w/e)
Her: GRAMPS SAID THAT EXACT SAME THING TO ME AND YOU TOLD ME IT WAS LITTERING
Friggin kids have memories like Elephants. That was at least a year ago that conversation had gone on. LOL!

So today 3 different times, in 3 different areas of the house Allie has smooshed her fingers.
Once in the front screen door window, once in her brothers toy tool box and once in the phone table drawer. I have no idea why she keeps doing this, I laid her down for a quick power snooze though.
You'd think after the first time she'd remember to remove her fingers before closing something. /:)

lol!!! you know you are a mommy when instead of money you use goldifh to bartar!
Speaking of money, when I drop Josh off at my g/f's before work I give him a kiss and say "mommy has to go make us money". He woke up around three last night and wouldn't settle back down so I went to get him. We where cuddling and right before he fell asleep he said "more monies mommy?"

LMAO! The oh shoot and repeating thing reminds.
Our Caitlin is really bad for repeating. I have a potty mouth. (poor kids LOL) I can't remember if I had stubbed my toe or if I dropped something on it. Anyway... it hurt.. a lot. So in normal Amie fashion I said.. shit! Well apparently Caitlin heard me. Later that day she tripped and fell.. as she was picking herself up I hear her go.. shit, oh shit. LOL! This was a few months ago. Thankfully she's pretty much learned now to not repeat everything mommy says. She still does it if she thinks she can get away with it. Says something bad then gets all gooey eyed and grins at you looking all innocent. Pfftt.. LOL!
On the aspect of swearing though...
One day I went downtown with a couple of the kids. We got stuck on one of the busiest streets downtown because some moron decided it'd be a good idea to stop in the middle of the road and wait for whoever it was they let out to run into a store. Dickhead... so I'm sitting there starting to fume. I hear a window roll down, I look over and just as I turn my head Jonnie leans out the window and yells MOVE YOUR ASS\!!! =| After that I stopped muttering to myself in the van too. LOL! Kids hear everything!
Now it's at the point that the older two correct me all the time. Like yesterday I dropped a drink on the floor and said AH SHIT. Jonnie comes running, Mommy you're not supposed to say words like that! LOL! Uh huh..I know, I know.

What a great kid you have Dana...just makes your heart smile doesn't it?
Yesterday I was visiting my friend Amber and her son Trent was sitting at the table playing his new operation game that he got for his birthday. He accidentally dropped one of the game pieces on the floor and we both bent down to get it at the same time and bumped heads...he looked at me funny for a second and I said "it's okay honey"...and he replied "it's okay honey" to me...LOL, Amber almost spit out her lunch she was laughing so hard.

aww Gray sounds so awesome and, thx you just reminded me to go grab Joshua's blocks from outside! (mommy told him we where going to put them in the garbage if he didn't help clean up..he actually didn't care and I should get them before it rains)

So last night I was playing with Gray in his room, and we were building mega blocks and he was knocking them down, having a total blast. Well when bed time rolled around I started cleaning up...and because I'm a nerd and pay far too much attention at playgroup, I started singing the "clean up" song. When I was finished singing and still picking up blocks and books and tidying up, I could hear Gray behind me, taking stuff off of the shelves, singing "wee up, wee up"...his way of saying "clean up"...He is so friggin' cute sometimes!
